I saw 1.7-.8gs a couple of times.

Nice to see the realism on my xbox360 is pretty accurate in regards to that track. Thats one bumpy ride...

it does look like a rough ride, imagine doing it in an F1 or indy car.

That place is EFFING amazing. If you ever get the chance to go, DO NOT waste that chance. In fact, save up ALL of you money and make that chance. I've been three times; total of perhaps 20 laps. That place is pure magic! $14/lap. If you break 10 minutes, I'll buy you lunch. My personal best 9:48 in a 2003 Opel Vectra.

Lucky bastard.

I actually don't believe that thing is pulling 1.5 G turns. Not on a DOT radial race tire... I could be wrong, but would like to see proof that it can do that on a grip test circle. Maybe Tirerack has some information about that...

Well that didn't take me long.

1.02 G's around the test circle.

We used the 225/45R17 sized tires mounted on 17"x7.0" wheels. This package was fitted to three 2001 Lexus IS300 sport sedans equipped with Eibach Pro-Kit Sport Springs and KONI Sport shock absorbers. Because of the "track only" nature of this test, the KONI Sport Shock Absorbers were adjusted to their firmest settings to more effectively control the IS300's suspension movements and body roll.
Sure, it's not a Corvette, but a tire can only do so much no matter what car it's on.

Maybe in the Corvette it was combining lateral and braking or accelerating forces together to get the ~1.5 number. Or not.
